By Ryan Wilson

Colts owner Jim Irsay has taken time out of his busy schedule of remaking the franchise to offer you, humble NFL fan and Twitter consumer, a chance to win two Super Bowl tickets. All you have to do is correctly guess Indy's next head coach.

One word of warning, however:

JimIrsay
If you predict Rob Lowe, I'll have to hunt you down like a rabid rat in the dark night and tease your kin and soak ur shoes n salted waters!

We have no idea what that means but it's enough to scare us into not typing "Rob Lowe" ever again. Literally (sorry, you knew that was coming). Alright, a sampling of what the Twitterverse has come up with...

The realistic candidates:

Jon Gruden is the Egg McMuffin of non-coaching football coaches...it's got to be Gruden!

Gene Simmons?

Probably Peyton Manning, hence the reason for keeping Jim Tressel...to 'assist'

It will not be anybody that youy would guess.  IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE; Please do not hire Tressel or Ryan.  Good lord.  Do not bring in Ohio State's trash.  I wish they would fire him now and get him out of the building.  Good grief...

If Indy fans ever start wearing those stupid vest, I quit loving the Colts and turn to hatin.  Don't know who my new favorite team will be but it will not be a Tressel lead Colts. That would be a fact Jack...
